26 Cubans attempting escape intercepted by Coast Guard and sent back to Cuba

Apparently, these 26 Cubans, who risked their lives to escape the island, had not read the Reuters story explaining how things are getting wonderfully better in Cuba.

Via the Miami Herald:

Coast Guard repatriates 26 Cubans

The U.S. Coast Guard repatriated 26 Cuban migrants to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, Friday who were interdicted at sea during three separate incidents beginning Christmas Eve.

On Dec. 24, crewmembers aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke interdicted eight Cuban migrants aboard a rustic vessel north of Mariel, Cuba. On the same day, the Coast Guard interdicted six more Cuban migrants aboard a rustic vessel south of Marathon after the vessel was detected by a Coast Guard HC-144 maritime patrol aircraft.

On Dec. 25, crewmembers aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Pea Island interdicted 12 Cuban migrants aboard a rustic vessel south of Key West.

“Migrants attempting to illegally enter the United States by boat often travel aboard dangerously overloaded and ill-equipped vessels," said, Capt. Brendan McPherson, 7th Coast Guard District chief of enforcement. "People aboard these vessels are putting their lives at extreme risk, so the Coast Guard with our partner agencies will continue to patrol vigilantly to rescue and repatriate undocumented migrants who take to the sea."
